Community Activities

DBBC, with the Bolton Council events team, put on radio roadshows at weekends throughout the summer months. These can range from big events on the Town Hall Square to small residents’ groups who want to raise the profile of their communities by putting on a gala or a family funday.

On these shows we provide a PA system and our excellent compère Andy Haslam to play music and promote whatever is going on, and we give a platform to local young talent such as dancers and singers from arts performing groups. We have tried to get all the groups involved and most of them send their students along when they are not rehearsing.

This occasionally leads to a big surprise later on if and when they become famous, such as when Danny Jones, (now of McFly fame) sang on some of our roadshows when he was a young teenager.

We also take our shows to Moss Bank Park on a Sunday afternoon once a month to provide ‘‘Music in the Park.’

Our roadshows not only promote DBBC but allow young talented singers and dancers to perform in public in front of a live audience. Many of these young people would otherwise find it difficult as they are too young to go into pubs and clubs to take part in karaoke.
